FTC Cares is a program run by FTC that assists district families in need, as identified by district staff. Since its inception in 2013, FTC has provided holiday meals for 64 district families. 


In 2017 FTC Cares tried something new — we allowed families in need to indicate how FTC Cares might best help them. Families can choose either a meal or a voucher/gift certificate that will allow them to fund necessary living and holiday expenses. That is in addition to the year-round assistance we offer for families that are in crisis and need temporary help.


This program is entirely donation-driven, so the number of
families helped will depend on the donations received.


How can you help?


Helping one family costs $75, but donations of any amount are appreciated.


Information will be coming out in November regarding sending donations in for this program, or you can make an online donation any time.
